Question Best Fish Oil Supplement?

See title. What do you think is the best fish oil supplement (pill and oil) out there, AND why?

Nordic Naturals. Personally I take the oil, but the pills are good too.

Very pure. The gold standard of fish oil supplements, IMO.

Re: Best Fish Oil Supplement?

Price: Costco Brand. 10$ for 400 softgels

Flavor: Barleans Omega Swirl. straight up tastes like candy.

funny story that only a Crossfiter would understand. one day after work my boss (owner of the Crossfit box i work at) stopped me before i left for home, and was like "dood. you have to come try this fish oil we found, its AMAZING. its at my house, follow us home." this was not strange occurrence to me. only in the Crossfit community would we get excited over a new fish oil

Re: Best Fish Oil Supplement?

I think Carlson's will be my next purchase of oil. I've heard nothing but good things about the flavor and potency and it's a much better price point than the Nordic Naturals.

8 oz Nordic Naturals = $60
16.9 oz Carlson's = $25

Difficult to justify that large of a difference, no matter how good tasting the Nordic Natural burps are.

Re: Best Fish Oil Supplement?

I personally take the triple strength fish oil from GNC and I have no complaints with it. I never get fish burps.

Re: Best Fish Oil Supplement?

I asked my wife to buy the lemon Carlson's for me as she was heading to the Vitamin Shoppe anyway. She accidentally bought "original flavor", so I gave it a try. Holy cow, it is so bad. I took large doses twice daily for a week, but had to break down and buy the Omegamaine vanilla fish oil. That stuff is delicious.

they make a great product in different flavors. the company is geared towards a crossfit lifestyle so its very concentrated and I havent experienced any fish burps with it.
